According to WBOY in Clarksburg, W.Va., Littlefield was staying in the 60 block of Jones Avenue in Morgantown when he was identified and arrested by Deputy U.S. Marshals.

“Fugitives often think they can avoid arrest by fleeing the area in which the alleged crime was committed,” said Acting U.S. Marshal for the Northern District of West Virginia Terry Moore. “This arrest highlights the effectiveness of agencies working together to successfully capture those individuals who attempt to avoid arrest.”
